These fairy lights look great even in dim light settings and create a vibrant feel for all your Christmas parties.
Work on That Door for this Year’s Chirstmas Decor
Your door is the primary thing people come across if they visit you during the festivities. So, to make your door look Christmassy, you can add a little colour to it to make it look festive. You can use Christmas themed garlands such as green, red, silver, golden, etc. and knot them together to create a spiral of colourful garland. These garlands spiralled together look very pretty if placed around the perimeter of the door. Add these around the entrance and even the surrounding walls and windows to put yourself and others into ‘Christmas Party Mode’.
Candle Jars for Perfect Dining
Instead of purchasing new candle jars, have a beautiful dinner setting with homemade candle jars for your guests. This way, you can also use the old glass jars that you have lying at home. The best way to use them is by placing floating candles in those jars and putting them around your dining table to have a great dinner party with your friends and family members. You can also decorate these jars with colourful ribbons, glitter, or stickers to make them look more lovely and decorative. Also, instead of the regular candles, you can opt for scented candles to make the setting more festive. This Christmas decor is perfect if you plan to have a fancy dinner with your ‘special someone’.
Ice Cream Sticks Snowflake
We all love snow themed decorations for Christmas in our homes. Well, instead of spending way too much on making your home look Christmas ready, you can go for this basic DIY décor with ice cream sticks. Paint the ice cream sticks in different colours and let them dry. You can also cover them in glitter to make them look more sparkly and festive. Then place these sticks close together and stick them with glue in the shape of a snowflake. Once the glue is dry, and the snowflakes look put together, place them on a light-coloured wall in your home, preferably in your living room, to make the place look perfect for Christmas. We are sure your guests will be pretty impressed with your craft skills!
The Holiday Card Wall

These cute photographs and greetings cards will surely make them feel nostalgic and remind them of the good old days of innocence. If someone gets new cards on the day, add them to your collection to make it look more fascinating.
Personalized Gift Wraps for Guests
Instead of wrapping Christmas presents in plain gift paper, make it personalized for your guests. You can add a little name slip on the gift wrap along with a few Christmas stickers to make it look more adorable. If you have a nickname for your friends or family members, then you can add that as well. However, instead of simply writing the name with a pen, you can cut out the initials of their name from a newspaper or an old book and stick it on the gift wrap to make it look more attractive and pretty.
In fact, you can print out a small passport sized photo of them as well that shows a memory of you and them and stick it on the gift wrap to make it more thoughtful and personalized. You can place all these gifts under the tree, and without even having to say it, the guests will be able to find their presents by looking at the photo. Surely, they will appreciate the effort and thought that you put into the gift wrap.
Christmas Decor – Tree Ornaments

If you have glass doors, shelves, and cabinets at home, then you can revamp their whole look by covering them in coloured papers that are printed in the theme of the festival.
